Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart. @goodreads



Dear Sweet Book!

I am so loving this trilogy. I am only hoping good things happen in the last book. Dear God, I will have to Hulk Smash many things if it doesn't! 


As we know in the first one Tessa's brother Nate got away and he is working with the enemy. That enemy would be Mortmain. He makes automatons and makes them kill people and he gets the werewolves hooked on a drug that kills them. He's just a really cheerful villain. He is trying to gain control over the Institute by getting one of the shadowhunter's to side with him and try to take Charlotte out of the game. He is trying to get them all kicked out of the institute by showing that she doesn't do her job well. I'm not saying who the evil shadowhunter is but he is older and he has kids and he eventually gets his, so there!

I don't know if I even mentioned in my first review that James Carstairs (Jem) and the love of my clockwork life, has been slowly dying since he was a little boy. But they have a way to keep him from dying too quickly and I hope to hell they find a cure in the last book or I will throw things. Yes.

And there is this little love triangle going on with Tessa, Will and Jem. I hate it. There are reasons for it, but I don't want to give too much information out about that. Tessa fell in love with Will first and he pushed her away because of this secret that I can't tell you. She then goes over to Jem's side because he is awesome and she realizes she loves him too. Anyway, things happen in that area and I'm telling you right now if she hurts Jem I'm going to crawl into the book and beat her arse!


Moving on.... I also love Magnus Bane in the book. I loved him when I read some of the Mortal Instruments books that I have to go back and read all of now. He's a warlock and he's bad to the bone and funny and actually nice.


Will shook his head. "I don't know, Magnus," he said. "He doesn't look like the right one to me."
"You said he was blue. This one's blue."
"He is blue," Will acknowledged, stepping closer to the circle of flame. "But the demon I need--well, he was really a cobalt blue. This one's more . . . periwinkle."
"What did you call me?" The demon roared with rage. "Come closer, little Shadowhunter, and let me feast upon your liver! I will tear it from your body while you scream."
Will turned to Magnus. "He doesn't sound right either. The voice is different. And the number of eyes."

So some other shadowhunters come over to show Sophie (who is a servant that we love) and Tessa how to fight. It's part of some deal that the brothers, Gabriel and Gideon have to do. But we like Gideon, he's a good guy and does the right thing.

There are a few more people brought into the house, they find a spy among them, more creepy automatons, some fight outs, drugs, craziness, and revelations galore. Oh and that ending!!! It was awesome! Lets just say we will have a two new additions to the family :-)

I love you Cassandra Clare!




  1. I love the Infernal Devices!! I'm glad you're enjoying the book. I think you'll love Clockwork Princess even more! Jem is a darling and I just want to jump in the book and give him a tight hug. And Magnus of course is his usual ball of awesome.

    1. OMG! I love Jem so much! I am starting Clockwork Princess tonight. I hate to see it end with all of them. I want it to go on and on. Lol

  2. I'm so glad you loved this one! Im this series is one of my favorites. I love Will & Jem, but Will is my favorite.

    1. I love this trilogy so much and I'm not even finished the third one yet. I love them all but I'm loving Jem as my main man. Whew... It's so nice to love all of the book boys and movie men :-D ♥

  3. Yay I am really glad and happy you really loving and enjoying the infernal devices. I really didn't mind the love triangle because both Will and Jem were both perfect for Tessa. But I was always team Will all the way and still am lol. Thank you for your great review and post.

  4. Thank you Katiria :-) I loved the first two books so much. I'm going to start the next one hopefully tonight. I went through the stupid reading slump after reading a not so great book :-( I love all of the characters in the book but I am team Jem. I love him so much, I love Will too as I usually love the muscle, tough dude types but Jem just blew me away ♥
